strategy with strom thurmond and those boys? >> that's why the great gary wills said richard nixon was the last liberal and there is a reference, willie brown is right, there should have been more, in a longer piece there would be more on that, on the philadelphia plan, but, yes, affirmative action, a phrase originated in the kennedy years, was seized on by the nixon administration. hey, daniel patrick moynihan said about nixon, this guy is not trying to undo the great society, he wants to outdo it. and what happened? ideologues within the conservative movement turned against nixon. >> well -- >> women -- >> let me go to willie brown. i know nixon. i'm not necessarily a nixon hater by any means. he was a member of the naacp in the '50s. pret friendly with whitney young, getting to know martin luther king ahead of the kennedys. and then becomes a totally mean guy in terms of electoral politics, hooking up with strom thurmond figuring he was going to grab what was left of the segregationists in the south when they were dispointed with the democrats. what happened to this guy? >> i th

's curse of the bambino, it has dogged leaders for the past century. richard nixon called for working together in his 1974 address, one year after his landslide re-election. >> i want you to know that i have no intention whatever of ever walking away from the job that the people elected me to do for the people of the united states. >> instead, two months later, nixon owned up to his role in watergate and eventually resigned. ronald reagan was swept into a second term with an historic 49 state landslide. >> there are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect. >> but many of his second term domestic plans fell to the wayside as his administration was consumed by the iran contra scandal. in 1997 after leading americans through four years of economic growth, president bill clinton promised something that hasn't been done in three decades. >> we must keep our economy the strongest in the world. we here tonight have an historic opportunity. let this congress be the congress that finally balances the budget

hero, eisenhower, the soldier of democracy. and the purely pragmatic political guy, richard nixon, who was essentially forced on eisenhower's ticket by party regulars. and eisenhower was wary of nixon, but also realized he had great political strengths. nixon knew or learned eventually that eisenhower was actually an extraordinary political leader. each learned something from the other. and nixon never quite got out from eisenhower's shadow. there's a great moment in the 1968 republican convention when nixon, at last, you know, is going to be -- now, he'd run in 1960 and lost. here's his chance to win. and what does he say? let's win it for ike. can't get away from ike. >> how about what ike said about nixon in '68, when they asked him about, name one important decision that dick nixon had any input in, and he said, i'll have to get back to you. >> exactly! >> give me a week. >> that was actually 1960, when nixon had been vice president. >> '60, yeah. >> yeah, joe writes, ike and dick is a highly engrossing political narrative that skillfully takes the reader through the twisted develo

have is the historical record. and we know that it happened after richard nixon revived a phrase of john f. kennedy's from the early '60s, affirmative action. he began with the philadelphia plan, to open up closed labor unions, in that city, philadelphia, businesses embraced the idea. william f. buckley jr. in 1970 said let's have preferential hiring. it was another wing of the conservative movement, the neoconservatives who objected to affirmative action, called it affirmative discrimination. but the author of that argument, nathan glazer, then recanted. why did he recant? because just as you say, businesses were willing to do it. this is not about business. this is about as howard dean said the hard-core ideology of a conservative movement which continues to drive that party. >> okay, sam, we're going to leave it there. thank you for heating up the set here. >> any time. >> we appreciate it. >> joe, appreciate it. >> thanks. >> we've got some msnbc's viewers. maybe just a couple of them. i don't know. maybe not. maybe zero. >> i want to shower after that. >> he's right. he's ri
